What a fabulous evening this was and a lovely tribute to John Stewart – Simon was on tremendous form, very relaxed and full of enthusiasm. He was so entertaining – with his interesting and amusing observations about the music. Indeed everything he sang was wonderful, but when he sang “My Boy Bill”, it was simply fantastic and he deservedly got a huge round of applause for it.
